These Collard Green Sushi Rolls with Spicy Tuna are so scrumptious! Plus they are kid friendly, me and my son had so much fun making these!
I love Sushi. I gotta admit I was a bit skeptical about using canned Tuna to make Sushi Rolls.
But after opening up a can of this Solid White Albacore Tuna by Wild Selections, I knew right away this would make the perfect Tuna Sushi Roll. The quality and taste of this Tuna is so incredibly yummy! Plus all of their tuna is Non-GMO Project Verified.
Wild Selections is the only full line of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable seafood. The blue MSC eco-label tells you the fish in your can comes from well managed fisheries and healthy fish stocks. Where the fish is caught is much more critical than how it was caught (limited impact if the fish stock is overfished)
I also think it’s totally awesome how Wild Selections gives back to the oceans by donating 13 cents from every can sold—a total of $1 million by 2018—to World Wildlife Fund marine conservation and fishery improvement projects. Wild Selections is the only brand to “pay it forward” and act on its belief to take care of the oceans for the future, not just fishing sustainably in the present.
How cool is that?!
And with Earth Day coming up, this recipe is a great way to celebrate and give back to the environment! 🙂
There is a little prep work to make this, but once that’s done it’s really pretty simple to make.
You can actually blanch your Collard Greens, make the Rice, and chop your veggies a day before to save time.
Once you have everything prepped, make a little assembly line with all the ingredients.
I start by adding the Sushi Rice to the middle of each Collard Green. You can use regular Rice, but it won’t be as sticky. I prefer Sushi Rice because of the sticky texture and the flavor. Plus it stays intact better within the roll.
Then add a layer of Tuna.
Next add the Cucumber, Carrots, and Avocado.
Note: Don’t over fill or it’ll be hard to roll up.
Roll each leaf up tightly and slice into 1 inch size pieces.
Making the Spicy Mayo is super easy, again you can make this a day ahead of time.
Just add Mayo and Siracha to a small bowl and mix together.
Note: You can make this a little or as spicy as you want. Just add less or more Siracha to your liking.
Add it to a small ziplock bag and cut a small slit in the bottom corner of the bag (makes it like a pastry bag).
Drizzle Spicy Mayo over the Tuna Rolls and serve!
Yum, Yum, Yum!
Me and Gavin (my 14 year old) gobbled these up! He loved them so much that he asks me to make these weekly for him now. 🙂
We will definitely be making more of these on Earth Day.
